Supervising Attorney and Assistant Director, Pace Community Law Practice (PCLP), Pace Law School

The PCLP is an innovative new community legal services center opening at Pace Law School in fall 2012.  One of the first of its kind, the PCLP will provide recent Pace Law School graduates with one-year fellowships to represent low and moderate income clients on a sliding scale basis.  In addition to providing direct legal representation, the PCLP will create capacity for low bono services by training and educating its Fellows in how to build solo and small legal practices.  This training will provide Fellows with the tools to sustain their employment and provide ongoing legal services to high-needs populations.  The PCLP plans to represent clients in immigration proceedings–which permit law graduates to represent clients before they have been admitted to the bar–as well as other legal practice areas, which may include but are not limited to family law, administrative proceedings such as Social Security and disability hearings, guardianship, housing, and others.

The PCLP is seeking a Supervising Attorney/Assistant Director who will have primary supervision and management responsibilities for the Fellows. The Supervising Attorney/Assistant Director will provide direct legal supervision and mentorship to the Fellows in their representation of clients and assist the Executive Director in the management of the PCLP.  S/he will also assist the Executive Director in creating and executing the training and solo practice curriculum for Fellows and guide the Fellows in their community outreach and training efforts.  The ideal applicant will have experience in one or more of the practice areas listed above.
